Gente Organizada (Gente) is a community-led social action non-profit organization based in Pomona whose mission is to bring together generations to access, build, and wield their collective power to achieve educational, economic, and social justice in our communities. Using an asset-based approach to community organizing,
Instead of focusing narrowly on the deficiencies and plight of immigrant communities, Gente builds upon the deep-rooted, unique cultural strengths that help have helped immigrant communities survive for generations and increase capacities for these communities to not just survive, but to truly thrive. We have three main components of our work: Empowering the youth of Pomona through the Pomona Students Union; Organizing parents through Padres Unidos de Pomona, and; Collaborating with community partners to promote a community-led movement for change.
